Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla Ring

Prep:  20 Minutes
Total Time:  35 Minutes
Servings:  8

Ingredient List

  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (8 oz)
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons Buffalo wing sauce, divided
  • 3 tablespoons from 1 bottle (9 oz) Old El Paso™ Zesty Ranch Sauce, plus more for dipping
  • 1 package (11 oz) Old El Paso™ Flour Tortillas for Burritos (8 Count)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced green onions

Preparation

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper or foil; spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, mix chicken, mozzarella cheese, 1/3 cup of the wing sauce and the ranch sauce.
  3. Cut tortillas in half. Spoon and spread about 1/4 cup chicken mixture over each tortilla half. Roll up each tortilla into a cone shape; arrange 8 cones evenly in a ring, cone tip facing in, on cookie sheet with 3-inch circle in center.
  4. In small bowl, mix butter with remaining 2 teaspoons wing sauce. Brush evenly over tops of cones in ring. Top with 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese. Arrange remaining 8 cones in second layer on top of first layer of cones, filling any gaps. Brush cones with butter mixture, then top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  5. Bake 11 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and filling is heated through. Top with green onions. Serve immediately, with more ranch sauce for dipping.
